Texas Tech is high on his list, and his relationship with the coaching staff is a big reason why.
"I would say my relationship with coach [Trey] Haverty is great," Benjamin said.
Running backs coach and associate head coach Mike Jinks is also recruiting the unrated running back prospect who rushed for 1,559 yards, 18 touchdowns in just nine games last season as a sophomore for Wylie East.
Benjamin is optimistic about Texas Tech's future, citing the power combo of Patrick Mahomes and DeAndre Washington.
"Coach Kliff [Kingsbury] is serious about turning this program around. Mahomes/Washington is deadly," Benjamin said. "I think Tech has a great education and they are really focused on athletes going to class and tutorials."
Benjamin spoke more on his and standout Frisco offensive lineman Jack Anderson's feelings about Tech, who he attended Texas Tech junior day with back in early March.
"I'm trying to come back sometime in June hopefully. Jack (Anderson) is my best friend and right now we're high on Tech. Love a lot of things we saw out there."
"I will soon be on an early graduation plan, so I'll be committing sometime before December of my senior year - or if I'm positive it's the right spot."
The 5-foot-9, 191-pound rusher lists offers from Iowa, Kansas, Miami, Nevada and San Diego State, with interest from Texas Tech, Texas, TCU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Michigan, Kansas State, and Baylor.
